Any elements or scenes deemed to be promoting inappropriate culture such as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) will be not be approved for public viewing, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman said this was based on the guidelines set by the Film Censorship Board (LPF) under Home Ministry (KDN) that disallowed any screenings on elements related to inappropriate culture for public viewing.
“Several aspects need to be taken into account by the LPF board members when reviewing movies and dramas for public screening.
“These aspects are related to national security and public order, socio-culture, decorum, morality and religion. LGBT issue falls under socio-culture, so the board will remove and will not approve any scene and dialogue that promotes such culture in films and dramas,” he said this in the oral question-and-answer session in the House today.
